Chris are you on fbook? I recently qualified as a barber

the one and only says:

to get rid of the lines do you use it open or closed?

george noneofyourbusiness says:

I try to cut my own hair and sometimes it is difficult to do the back of my head. Please do a video on how to do to back. I.E. How high to bring the line up in the back to start the fade. Great video. Thanks.

murray smith says:

That doesn’t look like a 0.5 into a 2 more like a 0.5 into a 1

appa the skybison says:

Bald out base guide
2.5 on sides
He raises the base guide bc client wanted

What is your zero guard ?? Smallest I am aware of is 0.5 and I am just finishing 2 years barber college. Is this for a different brand clipper ?

John Smith says:

15 seconds ‘ hey man!!! What the he’ll you doing?!!’ Lol hahahahahahahahahaha

harken says:

i been cutting my own hair for a while now and do friends here and there. I use an oster set passed down to me by my father but i noticed at the shop and on videos people say “1 and a half”. My oster set uses inches such as 1/16 or 3/8 inch. Is there some conversion to associate a 1, 2 or 3 to these inch measurements?

Christina Beaupain says:

what is this song??? 🙂

Mike H says:

Hey Chris, Question:
If i first start low on the sides with Wahl Open (no guard) — then next would be #1 also open…
What size i should use to erase the line between “No guard open” and #1open??
the #1 Closed???

Or lets say I want to start with #1 closed on lowest on the side..
the next would #2 Closed …
If i want to erase the Line between these 2 , what should i use??

When you make a video can you put in the description in order what size you used in order.

Nice fade! Can you please tell me the name and brand of each clipper you used?
I am moving to Europe in November and won’t be able to use my American clippers there. Thanks

julie pelland says:

i Just started to use clippers to cut my boyfriends hair and its the first time I tried to cut hair. His cut ended up looking military style because I put the fade to high. because the top of his hair isn’t that long…how to i do a nicer, lower fade when his hair is a still a bit short?

MrCrimene says:
